RIP incursions
RIP Ratting
RIP bombing

Time to go back to wow, where it makes no sense to have multiple accounts

How are you even going to "catch" people who are input-multiplexing hardware-wise

So is-boxer is banned?

edit: I Honestly dont care about is-boxer or what it can do, since i've never used it, or met anyone who uses it. But the OP is not very clear on it.



isboxer isn't banned. Some of the things isboxer can do are banned.



I'm seriously lacking faith in the eve population, that they can understand such a policy... All it takes is a few clicks, and bam you're doing something illegal.

ISBoxer has some great uses outside of it's broadcasting functions. So maybe, but probably not.

For god's sake CCP stop all the bluster and give a straight answer

ISBOXER banned or not? It just needs a yes or no

All this crap about terms like Input Broadcasting and Input Multiplexing mean squat to me as I have no idea what they are.


For these things, yes it is banned.

Quote:

This includes, but isn’t limited to:

• Activation and control of ships and modules
• Navigation and movement within the EVE universe
• Movement of assets and items within the EVE universe
• Interaction with other characters


It seemed pretty clear to me.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

We would like to clarify that it does not matter how Input Broadcasting and Input Multiplexing are being done, whether through use of software or modified hardware. Our only concern is regarding how it is being used in the EVE universe.

How does this policy update regard the usage of KVM switches to control multiple computers from one mouse/keyboard?

I've had a good suicide ganking run, but the wave of nerfs against it don't seem to be stopping anytime soon.

Thanks. It's been fun.

That doesn't broadcast, it just changes where input goes - it should be fine.

I am impressed by CCP's decisions that might hurt their wallet in the short term, but are of positive effect to the game in long term. This is a very welcome change and this comes from someone that has actually used and seen what that tool can do. well done. I'm curious how you're going to find out/enforce for sure if people are broadcasting commands, though.

I've made a signature. I hope you're enjoying it. www.evetrademaster.com - web based asset manager & profit tracker
